 It always blows my mind to see "mothers" who don't raise their kids! you are the mother! why do you not have custody of your child?!!?!? why is someone else raising your kid you see a couple times a month or every other weekend?..

Children should be with their mothers. unless drug  addict or abusive.

 

 

*wow this blew up! I guess a better statement would have been.. If you are not going to be a great mother don't have them! if you cannot love,nuture,provide and be there for oyur child you are very pathetic and should not of had them!.. yes fathers are just as good if not better but if the mother is what i just listed above, the child should be with her.. careers and money issues is something you should of thought about prior. every "excuse" anyone has mentioned could of been prevented most are just lazy excuses IMO. they are VERY few legit reasons to not have your child. and I mean few. .

Because some mothers aren't maternal.  Just because a woman can have a baby doesn't mean she can be a mother.

I raise all my children.
My SIL fits your description. She gave her mother temp custody while she went to mental ward to stabilize her depression, her mother gave her kids up... That was years ago, now she can't get em back.

Unless you parent with your vagina then there really is no reason a father can't be as good, or better, than a mother at raising a child.

I don't understand why it is acceptable for men to not have custody, bit a woman not having custody and she is the devil herself! Everyone should be involved in their childrens lives.

Oh calm down.  One of our friends has full custody of his children, and he is better than most mothers I know.  She is not a drug addict or abusive just wants nothing to do with them, unless she gets money.  All in all he is the better parent.

Sometimes fathers are the better choice. They're just as important.
